Question [sil] What does orc/elf/human skeleton do?

What does orc/elf/human skeleton do?
Beside being creepy, does this thing have any real use?

Nope, flavor only. I like to throw orc skeletons at orcs to remind them what they've got coming to them.

Maybe you could add to the description of useless items (which is atm only skeletons): "You can't think of a single use for this." or "It is useless/useless junk/a useless item."

Have you tried 'u'sing them? The game says "it has no use".

[Trivia: why are filthy rags useful, instead?]

Filthy rags can be enchanted by bonuses to stealth

Maybe there's an artifact filthy rag?

Apart from the two correct responses, it can also be protection or have a bonus to evasion, I think, but that's pretty much it.

The rag of Dungalef is fantastic if found in the early game. (Used to be better when Vanish had its old mechanics, but still very useful now.)

What I had in mind is absorbing acid damage. But after checking the source, it seems that if a wearable item gets hit by acid, it doesn't reduce the total damage (acid_dam() in spells1.c).

Strange. Has it always been like that in every variant? I seem to recall it was different.

Well, I won't bother wearing those unenchanted sets of gloves in the early game, then.
